New Cabinet 'Wanted The Deacon
London, Ft-!. The Irish local govern
ment bill, which the Conservatives prom
ised as one of the measures to be pro
posed at thi session of parliament, was
read for the first time Thursday night
amid derisive cheers and laughter of the
Gladtonin and Lome rulers, who later
in expressing their views deemed hardly
able to End words of sufficient force to
rroperly represent the scorn they felt for
the bill. It was in their opinion worse
than no bill. The Conservatives fre
quently cheered the bill, but their enthn
feiasrn was no match for the howls of
derision with which it was received by the
It fcniU the Standard.
The portions of the bill that raised the
loudest storm of objections are those
which provide safeguards against corrup
tion, and what would be called in America
boodlery. TLis. the Irish and Gladstone
members considered an insult to the
Irish people. But while some of the Liber
als profess to believe that the bill was in
troduced to be abandoned and others
think it mhiht pass a second reading, but
could never get through the committee,
the Standard stoutly declares that the
ftovernment will proceed with it and will
have the support of the Liberal Unionists.
There may be some differences as to de
tails, but the main features of the bill are
approved by all Unionists. The Standard
says: "The measure carries out those
conceptions of policy which have always
found favor in the Unionist party."
The Telegraph Doesn't Like It.
The Telegraph remarks that those who
would fain have supported the bill found
nothing to say in its defense. The bill is
in no sense a fulfillment of the govern
ment's pledges. The ground plan of the
measure is good, but the safeguarding
clauses are open to more or less objection,
and one is provocative of positive ridicule.
The governront cannot that deny they have
offered Ireland something signally inferior
to that given to the rest of the kingdom.
If she deserves nothing better, they were
wrong in introducing the bill and cannot
escape the obvious dilemma in which ;hey
have placed themselves. It is now for the
government to consider whether or nut it
is better to drop than to try to amend the
AN APPEAL TO THE ELECTORS.
Hal four Th inkit it Should Not be Longer
It is said that Half our was strongly af
fected by the maimer in which his speech
on the bill was received and that he after
wards conferred with leading Tories in
his private room t the bouse of commons.
Some of the utterances at this conference
Lave leaked out. Balfour, it appears,
pointed out that it was not only useless
but dangerous to defer any longer an
appeal to the electors and that everv day
the session was prolonged increased the
difficulties of the situation. He said that.
as a measure for the conciliation of Ire
land, the local government bill was evi
dently a failure and that the issue would
have to be fought out distinctly on the
question of parliamentary home rule.
These sentiments met with general approval.
The question wiil probably come nn at a
cabinet mesttnst to 1 held today, when, it
is thought by many, the government may
decide to dissolve. If the session is pro
longed the government will have to face
on March 8 the dancerous issue of Welsh
disestablishment. It is known that manv
of the Liberal Unionist adherents of the
ministry are in favor of disestablishment
in Wales, and the Liberals intend to make
a strong point of the question in the coin
ing general election, while it is at the
same time a subject that the Tories are
anxious to avoid for fear of alienating the
'onconfornii-ts who support the anti
home rule programme.
Defended by The Times.
The London Times declares that Balfour
has displayed a complete mastery of de
tails of a very complicated and technical
subject. The safeguards proposed would
probably never interfere with the free ac
tion of the councils. The trial clause is
really nothing particularly new. There i a
checksimilar in the Irish poor law. The -factitious
rage Into which the Gladstonians
and the Irish members worked themselves
is really amusing. We doubt whether
they will be able to stir up the English and
Scotch electors by relating the wrongs of
judicially deposed county councilors."
Other Editorial Opinion.
The Daily News says nothing more ex
traordinary, than this bill was ever sult
mitted to parliament. Balfour's strongest
enemies never imagined that he could
have devised so thoroughly bad and hope
less a measure. The Chronicle thinks the
bill an honest attempt but that it fails to
please anybody. It is good ao far as it
goes, but it does not go far enoegh. The
Pall Mall Gazette hopes, for Balfour's
Jake, that the rumor he opposed it is true.
The contents, it says, are stupid. It goes
without Baying that all the Irish home
rule papers oppose and deride the bill.

President Carnot accepted the resigna

iong onference with I)e Frevcinet before
concluding upon acceptance, and the pre
mier toM the president that his action
could not be recalled, and that the course
of the cl:amler left no choice between dis
honor and resignation. After the defeat
oi l!ie in liistry Thursday there was a re
markable scene in the eliumler. At fi-st
U.e niaji rity was as thunderstruck as the
minority. They had hardly expected to

"til l lleiine" People Wake I" p.
The ft Mowers of the old regime, who
had sat in calm hauteur dav alter day
watching the onward sweep of the current
beyond t:ieir control, suddenly awoke to a
sense of t he result. They threw aside dig
nity and began embracing, and some evin
kissing etch other, irately nobles, from
remote r arts of France, where loyalty to
the churc i and royal house is born in the
people, f rirot their reserve and danced
aliout like dervishes iu their delight at

with yells and execrations.

Chicago, Feb. 20 A dispatch from
Washington yesterday announced the de
parture by four special trains of over $ 0
congressmen, diplomats and newspaper
men, accompanied by a large number of
ladies, to visit the fair site in this city and
take note of the progress made. The com
pany includes nearly a hundred members
of the national house of representatives,
more than a dozen memtiers of the United
States senate and lietween thirty and forty
Washington correspondents of leading
newsjKipers. Representative Durborow,
chairman of the World's fair comi.iittee of
the house; Adlai T. Kwing, chairman of
the Chicago citizens' committee, and
Messrs. Newberry, M-.'flann and Taylor
the other Chicago members of the house,

the excursion a creditable one, and their
success must prove gratifying.
A Humorist W ho Cot Left.
Humorous John Allen, of Mississippi,
whose witty speeches iu the house and
after-dinner talks have made him famous,
was prevented from coming at the last mv
ment by the sudden and serious illness of
his wife. Mr. Washington, of Tennessee,
was also detained by the unexpected an,
nouncement that his committee would
have to hear m nie testimony to be pre
sented by witnesses who had come all the
way from Utah. Rather a curious and
somewhat annoying feature of the excur
sion were the importunities made by per
sons who had not been invited, but who
were anxious to take the trip to the
World's fair city. Possibly there were a
rouple of hundred of these, and they be
sieged the Chicago congressmen. Chair

the arrangements until life for these gen
nien became really burdensome.

The train will make the trip to Chicago
in just twenty-four hours ami twenty-live
minutes, provided it runs on the schedule
time arranged for it. The first section will
reach Chicago at 3:i in this afternoo i.
The last one is expected to get into Cl i
cago at 3:30. That will give the visitors
ample time to reach the hotels to which
they have l-en assigned and prepare for
the evening reception and other entertain
ments that have been arranged.
